Overview

Small-town reporter Vince Marshall has a plan to be a better dad wean himself from his cell phone and a 24/7 work mentality and spend more time with his toddler. But when his daughter discovers the local judge swinging from a noose at the playground and Vince's friend becomes a murder suspect, that plan unravels. With toddler in tow, Vince knocks heads with a coworker out for his beat and a mayor with questionable motives while chasing clues left by a senile grave robber. Meanwhile, arson, vandalism, domestic violence, and a contested election have the normally staid residents of Apostle Bay, a quaint harbor town on the southern shore of Lake Superior, at odds. Add Vince's wife Deb to the mix, leading a contentious protest at City Hall, and Vince finds his life once again out of control. Restoring order and saving his friend will require following a trail of deception to the solution of a 150-year-old mystery.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

In the second title in Williams's Lake Superior mystery trilogy (after Superior Death), reporter Vince Marshall and his toddler daughter find the body of the local judge and philanthropist hanging in the town park. A magnet for murder, Vince also attracts the town ladies with his adorable child. To complicate matters, the chief of police is dating Vince's mother. No matter how clueless Vince is this time around, he stumbles upon the guilty and survives. His appeal may stem from the fact that he has put his career on hold to be a father. Williams, himself an award-winning reporter, lives in Marquette, MI.
